Default Connecting Nexus 5 to PC to act as hard drive ISSUES

Any one else having issues doing this?

I was only able to get it to work by going into storage > usb connections > unchecking MTP and checking Camera PTP.

However, when I Do this... it will start transferring images from PC to Phone and after a while it will just say can't copy file... I hit skip and it does the same for aLL files.

I have to literally unplug the device and then start over...

Any idea why it's not working as a hard drive and just seamless?

Thanks,

RR

I had the same problem but I have no idea why... Eventually all of my files transferred over but it took forever.. I was using windows 8.1, not sure if maybe there's a driver issue there or something

I did resolve this issue by using CF-Auto Root to uninstall all drivers, then install nexus 5 drivers AND root...

Took care of it all... works fine now!!
